Report rips school for haz­ing in­ac­tion

Austin American-Statesman - - THE SECOND FRONT -

A blis­ter­ing state report re­leased Fri­day con­tends that Florida A&M Univer­sity of­fi­cials failed to fol­low state laws and reg­u­la­tions on haz­ing in the years lead­ing up to the death of a FAMU drum ma­jor. A 32-page report con­cludes that the school lacked in­ter­nal con­trols to pre­vent or de­tect haz­ing, cit­ing a lack of com­mu­ni­ca­tion. But in­ves­ti­ga­tors said there was in­suf­fi­cient ev­i­dence to con­clude whether univer­sity of­fi­cials ig­nored al­le­ga­tions of haz­ing given to them by the former di­rec­tor of The March­ing 100 band shortly be­fore the Novem­ber 2011 death of Robert Cham­pion. Larry Robin­son, FAMU’s in­terim pres­i­dent, said the univer­sity would of­fi­cially re­view the report for any in­ac­cu­ra­cies.
